Born Tyrone McDonald, life has never been smooth-sailing for Nova NocOut. He grew up on the North Side of St.Louis in Missouri. As a young kid only in the 3rd grade Nova had already witnessed a man being shot to death in his north side home so Nova was introduced to the streets early & unwillingly. After seeing & being in numerous incidents including shoot outs & street fights Nova began to form a hard shell of mental pain which after nights of wishing for a better life Nova began to turn his frustration & loud cry's into melody's which helped him escape mentally & turned into a self motivated rapper with one mission.....to give him & his family a better way of living. As time passed Nova recorded numerous songs & performed in local clubs thru-out St. Louis & out of town venues as well also having radio success with a local street anthem called " Shake Them Haters Off " that made him hunger for more. Nova began shooting his own videos & is now creating a huge buzz in the streets of St. Louis & over the internet & he doesn't plan on stopping anytime time soon.
